SGS, the world’s leading testing, inspection and certification company, has published a SafeGuardS covering recent amendments to the standards that demonstrate presumption of conformity with France’s Decree 91-1292 on childcare article.
The updated list was published in the French Official Journal on February 2, 2023. The text states that articles conforming to the previous standards can still be produced and imported until December 1, 2023. It will also be possible to continue selling already constituted stocks of childcare products that comply with the previous standards, until they are exhausted.
The updated list includes the latest versions of the following standards:
– NF EN 1888 + A1: 2022 – Childcare articles – Wheeled child conveyances – Part 1: Pushchairs and prams
– NF EN 716-1 + AC: 2019 – Furniture – Children’s cots and folding cots for domestic use – Part 1: Safety requirements
Stakeholders should also be aware that latest versions of European standards, when published in the Official Journal of the European Union, also demonstrate presumption of conformity with the French regulation
SGS has published original SafeGuardS 021.23 to give stakeholders a better understanding of the impact of the new list of standards. This includes details of SGS solutions that are available to childcare product businesses wishing to operate in France.
